Should I still do leg workouts during cycling season?

I'm looking for advice on combining cycle commuting with gym-based workouts.

I'm a 41 year-old guy in reasonable shape. I hit the gym about 3x/week where I do a pretty basic weight machine routine. For six months a year, I commute to work by bicycle, racking up about 10k/day. I'm not sure if the cycling is enough of a leg workout on its own, or if I should still be doing leg presses, calf raises etc. I don't want to totally physically exhaust myself. So, any/all advice on combining regular cycling with weightlifting would be welcome. Thanks!
