Dangerous?: Maybe not dangerous, but certainly not always productive. Your body needs rest too. If you wake up the day after a hard ride feeling exhausted or you notice your performance on the bike declining, you are probably overtraining. An easier, recovery ride a few times a week can give your body a chance to rest and rebuild.
