It sounds like you're definitely hitting it hard. So long as you, and your body, are good with that much training, I say stick with what you feel is right for you.
As for my input, I always do my legs at the end of my workout, albeit Push Day (chest, tri's, shoulders, delt's) or Pull Day (back, bi's and lats). I feel that working my legs is paramount; however, I'm admittedly not Draconian about it. Generally, my leg routine is simply 3 sets of walking lunges, for 20 reps, with 60 & 70 lbs dumbbells. I don't really do much more than that as I've found this works my glutes, hamstrings, quads and even my calves well enough that I'm not exhausted when I ride the next day and I really feel it, so I know I'm getting to places that riding doesn't.
Each person has to find their own exercise niche. It took me over 10 years of weight training to get to the point where I knew what my body wanted and give it what it needed. At one point, I was going to the gym 6 days a week. I was always tired and just plain run-down. After about 6 months of this, I realized that I was simply doing too much. In the end, cycling is my health-pursuit mainstay.
So, at the risk of repeating myself, if your rigorous regimen works for you, by all means, hit it hard and fast. But pay attention to what your body is telling you. If you feel you're overdoing it, don't feel as though you're slacking if you back-off some and maybe take two rest days. Regardless of what you decide, I'm sure you'll reach that goal.
