I don't see a drop on the number of riders on weekend rides but I don't have the actual numbers. However, I have two patterns that may support your observation. First, my local bike shop said that in 2018 they sold more mountain bikes than road bikes. The shop owner said that there has been an increase in interest in MTB, with many MTB purchasers who were formerly roadies. Second, the number of registered riders for the MS150 has dropped off in the last two years (sorry, I don't have the actual numbers but I know it was down from the numbers published by MS Society). I also visited the BPMS150 webpage this week and I noticed that the number of registered riders are down from last year.
