I would say that what you're proposing may work fine. You are ramping up the miles pretty quickly after not cycling for 3 months or so. I did the same thing a few years ago and I got knee tendonitis that turned into a chronic condition. I had done this for years each spring and it was fine, but I think that was the year in my life where adding the new stress finally exceeded my body's capacity to heal quickly. I'm not saying that will happen to you, but you should listen to your body and be mentally prepared to dial back your effort if something isn't feeling right.
