Make sure you treat others the way that you would like to be treated and you're a long way towards being a welcome member of a group ride. Make sure you indicate, point out obstaces, and if you need to spit move to the back. Ensure you're not 'half wheeling', wait for people on climbs or if they've had a mechanical and give people encouragement on the ride.
Follow these rules for riding in a group and you'll be welcome on almost every group ride.
