I think it will work with

cd "`cygpath -D`"

That's backticks inside double quotes. Windows makes it easier since (I 
think) quotes are not allowed in filenames. Beyond that, I think a quick 
and dirty procedure is to backslash anything that isn't alphanumeric; if 
it's special, it gets escaped, and if it's not special, then backslash 
doesn't hurt anything.
