use the following:

public static String getSalesCycleString(List salesCyclesList) {
   StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
   for (salesCycle cycle : salesCyclesList) {
      sb.append(cycle.getCycleId());
      sb.append(",");
   }
   return sb.length()==0 ? "" :  sb.substring(0, sb.length()-1);
}
